David Wilson Homes North West has expanded its community outreach into Greater Manchester by sponsoring a brand new kit for Vixens Netball Team.

Founded 10 years ago whilst playing together in primary school, Vixens Netball Team is comprised of women that love to play netball. The team was founded through a passion for the sport and the comradery of playing in a team.

Charlene Aspinall, Founder and Team Captain at Vixens Netball Team, said: “It’s very generous for David Wilson Homes to have made this donation and sponsored our team as we are fairly small, only having 10 members in total.

“It’s extremely important to support local teams likes ours as it gives access to further opportunities and, as a group of mums, it’s also not easy to raise funds and the equipment isn’t the cheapest, so it’s incredible for David Wilson Homes to have done this.”

The team is currently playing its games on Thursday evenings, and has seen great success playing in the Wigan and Leigh Netball League.

Charlene continued: “We used the donations to buy our new kit, as well as buying brand new balls and matching branded jumpers. It’s so great to see the girls all in matching uniforms as it really emphasises our team spirit when we’re playing.

“Coming together and playing as a team has been so good for the members, both in terms of our fitness and our mental health. If anyone is interested in joining the team then we’d love to hear from you.”

Members of Vixens Netball Team have also begun their own local league, named the Wigan Roses Netballers, which currently features 12 teams, with the aim of promoting netball to women throughout the county.

Claire Jarvis, Managing Director at David Wilson Homes North West, said: “We are thrilled to be sponsoring Vixens’ brand new kits and helping them acquire some brand new equipment, too.

“We are committed to creating a positive impact on the surrounding areas in which we build and are pleased to contribute to help the club as it continues to thrive. We are delighted to hear about the positive impact the club has had on its members.”
